MGM is planning to open its $960 million Massachusetts casino earlier than expected.

MGM Resorts International President Bill Hornbuckle said in a Wednesday interview with The Associated Press that Aug. 24 is the new planned opening date for its resort casino complex in downtown Springfield. The company had previously envisioned opening it sometime in September.

Hornbuckle declined to address reports the company has been negotiating with Wynn to take over its $2.4 billion project in Everett.
